Ultracap Standard Modules
modules were primarily developed with the aim of increasing the power and energy density of ultracapacity systems. The original design by the Maxwell company has become a quasi-standard. The 48V 165F module is the forefather of all subsequent modules of this type. All variants are also based on the so-called 60 mm cylindrical cell design. Capacitances range from 650F to 3000F, the voltage range is between 2.7V and 3V.
Typical voltage levels and capacitances are between 16V to 500F and 48V with capacitance up to 166F. Other voltage levels of 64V, 80V, 90V and 120V are also possible and are then based on a different cell type (360F). This allows higher voltages to be accommodated in the most compact design possible.
The standard modules are often used in mobile applications such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs), in stationary applications for recuperating energy in crane systems or in test systems for absorbing large amounts of energy.
The range of applications for these standard modules is huge. We advise development teams on the specification and selection of perfectly fitting modules!
Supercap cells, which are based on small cell types and voltage levels of 5 to 32 V, are also referred to as "small modules" in the market.
